Murphys Suites

Name: Millie Smith
Phone: 7757830037

We’re going to Murphys in Calaveras County, California, August 21-23, for our annual Winery Tour.  This year, especially, I’m sure you would  like to be outside and get away for a nice long weekend of wine tasting and walking. If you’ve been to Murphys before with our club, this tour will be different due to the pandemic, but I guarantee it will be fun.

We have 20 rooms reserved for the club at Murphys Suites. You need to book now, before tour registration, as they will go fast. Rooms are checkin Friday, the 21st of August and checkout Sunday, the 23rd of August.  Please call #209-728-2121 to reserve your room. It is under Sierra Nevada Porsche Club – $179.00 per night (total for two nights with taxes is $400.96, double-occupancy).  There is a 24 hour cancellation on the room but once we have the dinner and tasting events prepaid, there will be no cancellations on those items. We don’t have exact costs on the prepaid events quite yet, but we do have some estimates below. Registration will open with the actual costs as soon as we know them.

Friday: The Reno/Sparks and points North folks will meet at the Wedge Parkway McDonald’s at 9:30 am and leave at 10 am to meet up with the Minden/Gardnerville and points South contingent in Genoa, about 10:45 am.  We’ll leave Genoa at 11 am and stop at the Twisted Oak Winery in Vallecito, CA for food and wine, before proceeding on to our hotel, Murphys Suites. Dinner is on your own Friday night.

Saturday: We meet at 9 am for breakfast at Hillbillies. At 11 am we will either drive or take a shuttle to Chatom Vineyards.  Returning to our hotel we’ll leave at 1 pm and walk to Ironstone Vineyards for lunch.  After lunch you are free to tour the downtown area with its tasting rooms or just relax at the hotel.  Saturday evening we will meet at the Old Murphys Hotel for cocktails at 6 pm and dinner at 7 pm.  Your choice of prime rib or chicken penne pasta, dessert included.

Sunday: After saying our farewells in the morning, we’ll depart separately for our homes.
